How do I drive a 5 phase stepper motor without using an IC? Answered
OK, so I have searched on the net to find the answer to this and I can't find a suitable answer, so I am turning to everyone here :)
I have a stepper motor:
5 phase stepping motor
DC 2.0A 0.34 OHMS/PHASE
oriental motor co.ltd
My question about this, is if there is a way to drive this motor without using an IC chip. From what I gather this motor is a Unipolar motor, it has 5 leads.I have the components to put an H-bridge together, but I don't know if that will actually drive this motor, coupled with the fact that I am new to building circuits. Buying an IC is not really an option at this point for me(I know they are cheap, but I have salvaged all my components and I am trying to do this without spending money). If someone would be so kind as to give me some pointers, I would greatly appreciate it.
